Paddling Esopus Creek | Kayaking Saugerties | Ulster County, New York

Exploring the Esopus Creek west of Saugerties Village Beach will reward kayakers with a beautiful trip along the edge of the Esopus Bend Nature Preserve which is heavily wooded and edged with impressive stone cliffs.

This is a lazy 2.5-mile round-trip upstream paddle limited towards the end by a series of small rapids. Species we encountered on our early spring visit included bald eagle and columbine
